TV of the Absurd

The US TV networks have released details of their autumn tv lineup (read here), which includes remakes of UK television shows Life On Mars and Worst Week Of My Life.

In other TV-related news, a craft enthusiast who had posted knitting patterns of daleks on the web has received a C&D notice from the BBC, due to copyright infringement. You Will Obey!
Thanks anonpussynamer for pointing out that last article to me.
